After much research, I bought OsoCozy Birdseye Flat Diapers, both bleached and unbleached. Apparently they're thicker than most cloth diapers...but I'm certainly no expert.
I decided to spruce these up by adding rows of pearl cotton running stitches.
These towels came pre-hemmed so it was easy to bury my starting/ending knots. (A note: the bleached towels were hemmed on all four sides, the unbleached were hemmed on only two.)
I marked my lines before I started stitching and I didn't use a hoop. The fabric is a bit of a loose weave which made stitching these quick and easy. I think these will be my go-to baby gift from now on...paired with a quilt, of course!
So, since I know lots of you have kids...was there something that made your life better when your kids were little? Preferably something that someone could make and give as a gift? All of us crafty, non-kid-having people will thank you!
